Similarly, if you keep trying to force your way on others, eventually people will be fed up and push back against you. This is why you should avoid bossing them around, and try looking at things from their perspective. Only when you accept them as being on the same level as yourself, will you have a chance of being accepted by them.
Thus, the sages follow the Tao in the way they treat others and manage themselves. They possess self-awareness, so they never flaunt, or put themselves on display — intentionally or otherwise. They respect themselves — but never so much that they place their own needs ahead of the people in an egotistic way. In general, the sages discard the illusory desires of the world, and affirm the genuine Tao in life. This is how they attain lasting peace and harmony.

"Perhaps it’s true that things can change in a day. That a few dozen hours can affect the outcome of whole lifetimes. And that when they do, those few dozen hours, like the salvaged remains of a burned house—the charred clock, the singed photograph, the scorched furniture—must be resurrected from the ruins and examined. Preserved. Accounted for. Little events, ordinary things, smashed and reconstituted. Imbued with new meaning. Suddenly they become the bleached bones of a story." -- Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things
Never thought this day would come ☺️🙌🏼
I’m honored to FINALLY announce the release of my debut poetry book #8IGHT
has been in the making for a couple of years, watching it and myself grow in the process from mere words to sentences composing a poem, changing colors, shapes and overflowing with raw emotions.
I’m thankful for the journey it has put me through, and for everyone who has contributed in that, thank you for all the love and support you have bestowed upon me 💕 .
It’s hard letting it go, but this is my gift to the world. I trust it’s in good hands 💝
Thank you, xoxo -S

"The loved one draws your best from you. In the other’s love you sense your potential. This does not mean that in a beloved person you react only to your own idealized self, for you are also able to see in the other, the beloved’s potential idealized self."

Prompt word// Inspiration
I derive inspiration from my two children, Ben and Emma. Their compassion and unconditional love towards others is an upward calling to me in so many ways.
This picture was taken 2 1/2 years ago in Chicago, while visiting my son Ben.
Ben is the adventurer. He has taken life by the horns and is determined to live on his own terms. He is afraid of NOTHING!
He is loyal, thoughtful and smart! He studied Philosphy, when he was in university, so naturally he is deep emotionally and logical at the same time, nice blend!
Now, he is a singer-songwriter chasing his dream of music. His grit inspires me!💖 Emma is my crusader! She is ALWAYS for the underdog. She had a heart of gold. She challenges me when I am critical or short-sighted towards others. We clash often because we are so much alike...sssh!!(don't tell her I said that) 😲
She is studying history in college but she recently mentioned "I've been thinking of law school lately!" Perfect future for her...we will see... I look up to her.
She is my hero💖
Thank you Lord for blessing me with my kids!!!
Self-ownership and logic, the rest stems from that.
I’m waiting for “For A New Liberty” to arrive. Looking forward to reading it.

Как интересно наблюдать. Люди, как правило, выбирают "горькую правду", нежели "сладкую ложь". Но это только в теории. ♤
В реальности же, если вам в лицо скажут ту самую правду - вы обидетесь. К примеру, какого вам будет, если вам скажут,что вы глупый/толстый/лентяй/тряпка... ?? Я уже вижу, как вы бежите в объятья к такому вестнику, обнимания его и благодаря за правду. .
Очень маленький процент людей, которые действительно, в состоянии принять критику. Принять, переосмыслить, и если нужно, исправить ситуацию. .
Во всех остальных случаях, а их 99%, люди просто обижаются. И прекращают общение. И что из этого вытикает? Что они глупы. Вот и реальность.
Зачем вы сами просите о правде, если не готовы к ней? Глупо. Сами себе противоречите изначально. Думайте. .

Darvaza gas crater,
It is known locally as the "Door to Hell" or ''Gates of Hell", is a natural gas field collapsed into an underground cavern located in Derweze, Turkmenistan. Geologists set it on fire to prevent the spread of methane gas, and it is thought to have been burning continuously since 1971.
It was originally thought to be a substantial oil field site. The engineers set up a drilling rig and operations to assess the quantity of oil available at the site. Soon after the preliminary survey found a natural gas pocket, the ground beneath the drilling rig and camp collapsed into a wide crater and was buried.
Expecting dangerous releases of poisonous gases from the cavern into nearby towns, the engineers thought it best to burn the gas off.
It was estimated that the gas would burn out within a few weeks, but it has instead continued to burn for more than four decades.
The early years of the crater's history are uncertain: local geologists say the collapse into a crater happened in the 1960s.

Solomon ibn Gabirol was an 11th century Jewish philosopher and poet. He is best known for the doctrine that all things, including soul and intellect, are comprised of matter and form. He believed in the Neoplatonic theological sense that God's reality infuses all things and in the Neoplatonic Return—the notion that we must strive, through mind and deed, to reclaim our own truest being and likeness to our source. Gabirol is most famous for his work, Fons Vitae which left its strongest impact, not on medieval Jews, but on the medieval Christian world.

Artık hiçbir karanlık duyguyu uzun süreli barındırmıyorum içimde; geliyor, vuruyor, sarsıyor ama sonunda hepsini tıpış tıpış uğurluyorum. Kazanan hep büyüyüp ışık saçmayı dileyen küçük kız oluyor. Yetişkin tarafımsa olanları izleyerek haz alan bir eleştirmen gibi; dikkatli, temkinli, analitik ve adaletli, en azından böyle gayret ediyor.
Sanırım bu durumda hiç kaybeden yok. Oh olsun sana hayat; bence artık sen de herkes gibisin... #peace #diary #yesfilter #yep #i #did #it #writer #philosophy #happiness #tries

Integrity means a lot, even to yourself, your own expectations. What you think you are, given by what you DO, will endure without prevention or reflection. The point i’m making here is that you must be cautious of your decisions, because they ultimately define you.
The why has to come before the how. This philosophy is something that I’m constantly forgetting, so don’t worry if you get it wrong too. Just try to hold on tight and watch the quality of your life improve the more you’re able to remember this. The best way to implement this is to find a lucky charm, totem, photo, or object that reminds you of your why and use it first thing when you wake up. Hold it, pray with it, whatever...just fill it with good vibes and remember your why. Every day you do this the vibes will grow...and eventually you’ll have a magic item that fills you with purpose and meaning every time you hold it. This is leveraging associative learning - because neurons that fire together wire together. 👨🏻🚀👍🏼
Что если повернуть время вспять?
Уверена, многие мечтали повернуть время вспять: вернуть утраченное, исправить ошибки, сделать то, на что в тот момент не решился. И это все было бы прекрасно, но...
Мы никогда особо не задумываемся над тем, как хитро и сложно устроен мир: каждая случайность, каждое действие, даже вдох и выдох ведут к череде определенных событий. Мы не думаем о том, что возможно, попроси мы прощения у друга десять лет назад, через сто лет на свет не появится человек, который перевернёт всю систему с ног на голову, и мир не будет прогрессировать, а Землю ждёт перенаселение!
Мы не думаем об этом, но это может произойти. Есть сотни вариантов развитий всей нашей цивилизации, зависящие только от нас и наших действий. Я веду это к тому, что не надо жалеть. Все ошибки, сделанные нами не случайны. Вселенная не терпит ошибок. Все к лучшему. Надо жить настоящим!

“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.” - Oscar Wilde
The fear and reverence of the Lord, will make the simple wise. The tyranny of evil men and women shall soon come to an end.
Nella Nascita della tragedia nello spirito della musica, l’uomo originario, «l’uomo vero, il Satiro barbuto», denuncia la civiltà come illusione. "Al fondo dell’arte, e della civiltà che grazie ad essa si inaugura, resta dunque la consapevolezza angosciosa di uno stato di natura dominato dal dolore. A questo staró di natura l’uomo greco dà le forme di un essere primitivo, semi-animalesco – il Satiro –, che corrisponde ad uno stadio pre-umano dell’umanità stessa, anteriore ad ogni forma di civiltà, e dinanzi al quale ogni civiltà si svela come menzogna, in quanto si edifica sull’occultamento del dolore".
